Are these the stock springs?

Post by bofler »

Just opened up my '83 forks and was wondering if these are the stock springs. The short one was on top of the long one.

Hard to tell but appear to be. I always check a fiche before asking ?'s like this. I ahve found fiche to be invaluable sources of info on parts when comparing or checking between model and years. Here is a fiche from Partzilla: ... k-absorber
Hope it helps. Make sure you reinstall the springs oriented the same way a you take them out. Normally the tighter/closer wound section of the spring goes to the top.
